Having Failed to Learn From the First Debacle, Another ObamaCare Website Rollout Fails

You’d think the Obamacare brain trust would have learned their lesson. But, no, they rolled out a companion website to Healthcare.gov, and it failed spectacularly too. Another federal government-run website created under ObamaCare is suffering the same symptoms as the troubled federal health care exchange — grappling with delays, data problems and other hiccups as the deadline to take it public nears. At issue is a database known as the Open Payments website. It was created under the Affordable Care Act to shed light on the financial ties between doctors and pharmaceutical companies as well as device manufacturers. The transparency […]

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline

Three Examples of Why America is In A State of Irreversible Decline   Being a self-appointed observer of the asylum we all have to live can be a daunting task. Although there are times when one can find humor in the observed insanity, more often than not the observations are unpleasant in the extreme. And, what could be more unpleasant than having to conclude from observing so much insanity that the irrefutable decline our once great nation is a permanent and irreversible. Think of the inertia in a spinning flywheel. For over a hundred years, the idealogues on the left have […]

Dependency Nation: More Than One Third of Americans On Government Assistance

. Let’s say Obama has a plan to build a permanent Democrat majority. A plan that will guarantee Hillary Clinton wins the White House in 2016. A plan which takes precedence over all other concerns, no matter what the cost to America’s short-term well-being or long-term prospects for security and prosperity. I suspect he (well, actually, Valerie Jarrett) does, and I’d say it looks something like this. Newly released Census data reveals nearly 110 million Americans — more than one-third of the country — are receiving government assistance of some kind. The number counts people receiving what are known as […]

Rutgers Pollsters “Stunned” American Workers Don’t Believe The Recession Is Over

Obamabot shibboleths meet Reality. Reality wins. This weekend, American workers will take part in a time-honored tradition, gathering around picnic tables and barbecue grills to talk shop. A new Rutgers University report on the American workforce in the aftermath of the Great Recession gives them plenty to discuss. American workers are “insecure, underpaid, highly stressed, and generally unhappy at work,” researchers found. The report, “Unhappy, Worried, and Pessimistic: Americans in the Aftermath of the Great Recession,” details the results of a national survey conducted by the school’s John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development. Researchers at the university have been […]

Fort Hood Shooter Wants to Join ISIS

Hat/Tip to Catherine Herridge at Fox News. It is becoming increasingly clear that ISIS has reach into our country AND it is exercising that reach. The convicted shooter in the Fort Hood massacre has written a letter to the leader of the Islamic State saying he wants to become a “citizen” of the caliphate, in the latest example of the terror group’s reach inside the U.S. The letter from Nidal Hasan, obtained by Fox News, comes after two Americans reportedly died fighting for ISIS in Syria. Sources late Wednesday identified the second as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis. Fox affiliate KMSP-TV […]

Douches Wild

“Obama simply decided to trade in Jeremiah Wright for someone objectively worse: Al Sharpton. Wright was a divisive, racialist demagogue, no question, but I’m unaware of anything in the Chicago preacher’s past that rises to the level of Sharpton’s behavior, past or present.” – John Nolte The worldview of Barack Obama has always been shaped by a wrecking crew of assorted communists, socialists, Islamists, pacifists, and perverts, so it should come as no great surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention over the last 6+ years that in matters of race, he has taken to relying on the inflammatory advice […]

OBAMA: ‘We Don’t Have a Strategy Yet’ on ISIS

Hat/Tip to Business Insider. Quick with a blame-Russia statement and then admitting he has no idea how to handle ISIS, President Obama addressed the White House Press Corps. …President Barack Obama addressed a pair of worsening world crises Thursday afternoon, blaming Russia for escalating violence in eastern regions of Ukraine and admitting he doesn’t yet have a strategy to confront the extremist group calling itself the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (also ISIS or ISIL). His statement from the White House came amid a day of significant escalation in the crisis in Ukraine, as Ukraine’s president accused Russia of sending […]

Republicans sound alarm as White House prepares go-it-alone immigration measures

Hat/Tip to Foxnews. The GOP is preparing for an all-out battle between themselves and President Obama. All signals point to Obama taking unilateral, unconstitutional measures to address the huge numbers of illegal aliens inside the United States. “For all intents and purposes, America no longer has an immigration system. Instead, we have unsettling chaos,” Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., wrote in a letter earlier this week to Obama, urging him not to go forward with unilateral action. The administration had indicated the president plans to announce a decision around Labor Day before leaving on a trip next week to Estonia and […]

The Emirates and Egypt Attack Islamist Forces in Libya _ A Positive Step?

It was about the time that President Obama announced his red line in the sands of Syria that Asylum Watch did a piece promoting the idea that America should stop fighting the proxy wars in the Middle East at the behest of its “partners” in the region; i.e., Saudi Arabia, the Arab Emirates, the Gulf State, and etc. The argument was that the United States had been providing arms, aircraft, and training to the militaries of its “partners for decades and it was high time they took on the responsibility of resolving regional issues themselves. In other words, we should […]

Open Floodgates on Border Push Deportations to a 3 Year Wait

  Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Thanks To Illegals Flooding The Border, Record High 375,000 Pending Immigration Cases, Minimum 3-Year Delay… President Obama has created a mess that will take years to unravel with his public invitation to illegal alien children. Meaning once they get in the U.S. it will take a minimum of 3 years to get rid of them, most skip their hearings so the number who will actually be deported is miniscule. Via Washington Examiner: Two top federal judges Wednesday said the nation’s immigration courts are in chaos, with the backlog of cases at an historic high of 375,000 for […]

Uncontrolled Immigration: Is It Selfish Not To Want To Commit Suicide?

  President Obama wants amnesty for illegal immigrants and he is threatening to use Executive Orders to make it happen if Congress doesn’t act. Democrats want amnesty and so do many Republicans and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. It’s only those heartless conservatives that want to throw the illegals out. Bloomberg News believes that trying to control the border is “Borderline Crazy”. Even Zero Hedge has a long article in which the author believes he has debunked all the reasons conservatives have to be against amnesty. The truth is, however, that immigrants, both legal and illegal, are replacing Americans in the workforce at […]

Honey, I Shrunk The Presidency

  You know a leftie like Obama is in hot water when sycophants like Tingles Matthews,Maureen Dowdy, and the editorial lackeys at the New York Times begin to carp.  Of course, that posse of progressive punditry is not really as exercised over Barry’s inane policies (or lack thereof) as they are over the excessive amount of time he’s spent bogeying the back nine when he could have been back in the Oval Office with his brat pack of latter-day Bolsheviks devising more ways to screw up the country and the world.      For a silver-plated narcissist like Obama, the day-to-day grind of […]

Obama Blames America for Rise of ISIS

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers & Breitbart. Obama Blames America For Rise Of ISIS, Says U.S. “Feeding Extremism” By Occupying Countries… Good ‘Ole Barry is still blaming and apologizing for America. How in the world an America-hating person such as himself found his way into the White House is a question for the ages. Via Breitbart: Monday at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention, President Barack Obama said the answer for ISIS’s “evolving terrorist threat” is not for America to “occupy” countries and end up “feeding extremism.” [...] “The answer is not to send in large scale military deployments that over stretch our military, […]

IRS DOES Have Lois Lerner’s emails, Says Too “Onerous” to Search For Them

  The IRS Does Have Copies of Lois Lerner’s emails, but It’s “Too Onerous” To Search Them? Remember when the Obama Administration said they lost Lois Lerner’s emails? Yeah, that was a lie. Department of Justice attorneys for the Internal Revenue Service told Judicial Watch on Friday that Lois Lerner’s emails, indeed all government computer records, are backed up by the federal government in case of a government-wide catastrophe. The Obama administration attorneys said that this back-up system would be too onerous to search. The DOJ attorneys also acknowledged that the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) is investigating this […]

Obama Stands Alone: Even His Cheerleaders in the Media are Baffled by his Deepening Isolation

Hat/Tip to FoxNews. Obama seems to have been retreating more and more from the everyday responsibilities of being the President of the United States. He gives an obviously forced speech about the beheading of American Journalist, James Foley, and not even 10 minutes later, he is seen ‘fist-bumping’ on the golf course, yucking it up and having a good ‘ole time. This brings to mind the lyrics from an old country song by the Statler Brothers: “Counting flowers on the wall, that don’t bother me at all Playing solitaire till dawn with a deck of fifty one Smoking cigarettes and […]

Obama Admin No Show at Memorial Mass For James Foley, But Sent Three WH Aides To Michael Brown Funeral…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. He called Sandra Fluke, but never bothered contacting the families of the agents killed by Fast & Furious… For obvious reasons. Via CNS News: President Barack Obama sent no White House representative to the memorial Mass held yesterday in Rochester, New Hampshire, for James Foley, the American journalist beheaded by the Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) terrorists. President Obama, however, did send three White House aides to Monday’s funeral for Michael Brown, an 18-year-old African American fatally shot in an encounter with a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo. The memorial mass for James Foley […]

Obama Admin Defies SCOTUS, New HHS Mandates are a Distinction Without a Difference

New HHS Secretary Sylvia Burwell, late of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation’s population control efforts, has again “revised” Obamacare’s anti-Catholic abortifascient and and birth control mandate. But her new regulations still firmly place the burden of providing life-destroying drugs and procedures on the employer. Meet the new form, it’s functionally equivalent to the old form. The new arrangement as a more complicated accounting gimmick, no different in effect than its predecessors. Arina Grossu, Director for the Center for Human Dignity at the Family Research Council, said the amendment “is simply another clerical layer because the employer still remains the […]

Who Does Speak For Islam, Mr. President?

Via Bad Blue Uncensored News, I found this tweet attributed to President Obama at The Crescat: . “ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents.” —President Obama — The White House (@WhiteHouse) August 20, 2014 . So, I have a question for our Commander-in-Chief and self-appointed defender of Islam. Who does speak for Islam? Recently, Mr. President, I read an article by someone claiming to be a Muslim. He said the hate spewing imans are misinterpreting the Koran by taking it literally. According to this man, where the Koran talks […]

Obama to Issue Executive Order granting work visas to nearly One Million Illegals

Hat/Tip to Breitbart. It would seem that our benevolent ‘leader’ is thinking about picking up his ‘pen’ and his ‘phone’ again… After meeting with a “bevy” of big-business groups, President Barack Obama is reportedly considering granting them up to 800,000 additional guest-worker visas via executive actions. According to the Associated Press, “one of the more popular requests among business and family groups is a change in the way green cards are counted,” which would “essentially free up some 800,000 additional visas the first year.” In addition, “other requests have included removing the requirement that some spouses of U.S. citizens return to their […]

#Ferguson: BREAKING NEWS – Ferguson Gang Leader Admits US Attorney General “Paid Us To Start Riots”

In our effort to maintain the highest standards for reporting the news and current events, we at Conservative Hideout 2.0 wish to retract a story that we published about the Attorney General of the United States. Even though we always vet stories, unfortunately we are human and accidents occur. That was the case with the above titled story about Eric Holder. Upon review we found that the original story emanated from a parody news site. We apologize to our many viewers for this oversight. Managing Editor, Donald King
